Apex Repeater and autopatch

Repeater Frequency : 146.920 - ( down 600).  Repeater Callsign : VE7OKN


The Apex repeater now supports the multiple DTMF commands. To issue the commands, send the appropriate DTMF number (1-6) and a DTMF asterisk (*) in one radio transmission (unless indicated otherwise in the command list):

  1. * - VE7OKN repeater rack temperature (Celsius)
  2. * - VE7OKN battery system and solar array information
  3.    - Function 3 in use by Penticton SAR
  4. * - Real time clock read back (local time)
  5. * - DTMF keypad test (append whatever DTMF keys to be tested after *)
  6. * - DVR voice radio check (wait for the prompt to record your voice)

The last 3 commands are similar to the Campbell Mountain repeater functions.
